and center at the annual conference of mayors, joe biden lobbied for the white house's plan to prevent gun violence. he said the need is urgent and called for action. >> i know we don't have absolute unanimity in this ballroom nor do we in any ballroom, but we all know, everyone acknowledges we have to do something. we have to act. and i hope we're all agreeing there's a need to respond to the carnage on our streets and in our schools. >> president obama laid out a number of proposals and steps he's has taken on gun control. few republicans are outright hostile to his plans with one texas congressman threatening executive impeachment. the nra has denounced the proposals, but they're taking heat over an ad they launched about president obama's daughters and the security they have at their school. the white house called the repugnant and cowardly. that's for you to decide. they blasted the nra. here's what he said. >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice but by requirement to have protection, and to use that somehow, to try
: the autobiography of joe biden." will tracy, visit us here in "the situation room." from time to time. >> absolutely, love to be back, thank you. >> thank you very much. >> he can keep a straight face, that was very good. i clearly am not as good at that. we have here in our very hands, i hope you see it. >> we've got more too. this is the program. >> this is the official invitation. hold it up, vanna. well done. sent to vip members of congress and the official program which was a history, also has a history of the united states capitol inside plus the program of events, of course, on the public inauguration day, which is monday. you can see it right here. it's really, really quite beautiful. >> it's gold. gold glitters here. >> it's gold. >> the honor of your presence is requested at the ceremonies attending the inauguration of the president and vice president of the united states. >> the guy we were just talking about. he'll be here, you'll be here, i'll be here. >> tomorrow we'll be here, sunday we'll be here, monday lots of live coverage coming up. history unfolding and we're thrilled to be here
at in my opinion the disingenuousness of the administration, they met with the nra, as you know, joe biden did and the nra brought up the fact that prosecutions for gun crimes and prosecutions for people who fill out -- lie on their registration forms or gun forms are down under this administration and the vice president responded we don't have time to devote to see whether people fill out a form right. well, wait a minute. they're asking for more forms and saying they don't have the time to fill out -- to check -- are they serious about this or is this just about politics? >> well, first of all, let's be clear about why there has been fewerenforcements, the head of the atf said there is a failure to confirm because the nra has objected and they have objected to reasonable pragmatic solutions and that's what this is all about. this is not about taking people's guns away. it's about a narrow set of proposals that will enable us to help enforce the existing gun laws, the ban on assault weapons and a ban on high-capacity magazines and even a ban on armor piercing bullets. are overwhelmingly s
previously banned by a law that expired in 2004. it was first initiated and passed by joe biden. he is the right person for the president to have appointed to come up with what we should do next. regulating assault weapons certainly falls within the bounds of the second amendment. so does everything else we are urging. this is not a constitutional question. it is a question of political courage. the supreme court -- the one that defines what the constitution means and says -- has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment. when the gun lobby raises the second amendment, it is nothing but a red herring. it is time for second amendment defenders in congress to call them on it. the three measures i just mentioned, we will require leadership from both the president and members of congress. there are other steps that president obama can take without congressional approval. at any time he chooses, with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this, and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps we have urged. first,
obama later this morning will be outlining the recommendations put forth by vice president joe biden. part of them will be some executive action. this is from our website, c- span.org. the president may also announced several executive orders which will take effect immediately to curb the violence. so, the assault weapons ban and those sorts of things need congressional approval. president obama will take some sort of executive action and we will talk about that later this morning. 11:45 a.m. eastern time as when we expect the president. look for our coverage. on coverage on the executive orders, do you support that idea by the president to do action on his own? we want to hear from you this morning. here is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly al
best quality of life in the world and destroy the united states of america, barack obama, joe biden, hillary clinton, and eric holder are destroying the united states. >> stephanie: everything he says these days smells a little treasony. >> yeah, didn't he say he would be dead or in jail if the president was reelected. >> stephanie: yeah. the president's approval rating has shot up significantly after the negotiations with the fiscal cliff, and now again after the gun control. johnny in georgia. hi, johnny. >> caller: good morning, first-time caller from the peachy state of georgia. enjoy your show. >> stephanie: thank you. thank you. >> caller: try to watch it every morning. i have got a thought. i think that we -- you know, we can agree on a lot of stuff, and i think we need to stop calling these assault -- so-called assault weapons assault weapons. nobody [ inaudible ] pick one up and loaded it said i'm going to go assault somebody. they say i'm going to kill something. let's start calling them what they are weapons of mass destruction. and our republican friends
